My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Prunes in bacon, dark chocolate fudge, orange marmalade, tobacco, cinnamon, hints of balsamic vinegar to name but a few.
Palate: Gentle smoke, prunes, black currants, dark chocolate, strong tea, cinnamon, hints of nutmeg.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly dry and smoky
Overall: After a very gentle start on the palate, this dram almost bursts into a taste explosion. There is a lot to explore in this malt, also the nose grows larger than Pinocchio’s after a while
Rating: 94/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Tasted blind for the Malt Manics Awards 2011, re-tasted for notes.
